Eating the right things to build muscle can be pretty challenging to do day in and day out. Sure in the beginning you might be okay with eating the same 5 or 6 high protein meals on rotation, but at some point, you’re going to get sick of constantly eating the same things and in general, you’re going to have cravings for things like snacks that are crunchy or sweet. On top of that some days you’re just not going to have enough time to meal prep. And the good news is you can satisfy both your cravings and a busy schedule, while still building muscle just by having a few of the high-protein snacks in your kitchen, that I’m about to go over.

And the first one is a very simple long-time bodybuilding favorite, string cheese. When choosing which string cheese to get you to have the option of light, which is usually made partially with skim milk or you can choose regular string cheese that’s made with whole milk. And the difference is that regular string cheese, has about 80 calories, with 6 grams of protein, and 6 grams of fat, meanwhile light string cheese only has 50 calories, the same 6 grams of protein, but only 2.5 grams of fat. Really either of these snacks is fine, but if you’re trying to stay really lean while gaining muscle, you can save almost half the calories by going with light string cheese, or you can have 2 light string cheese’s sticks, for pretty much the same calories that one regular string cheese stick would have, except you’ll be taking in 12 grams of protein. And unlike many other light products, if you get a good brand, light string cheese can actually taste just as good as regular string cheese.

Next is a sweet snack that can help you destroy your cravings for dessert, and the nutrient profile is something that is pretty good for someone trying to bulk up. I’m talking about quest cookies. Quest is a company that’s known for making protein bars that taste delicious. And they definitely don’t disappoint when it comes to their cookies. 1 Quest chocolate chip cookie has 15 grams of protein and only 1 gram of sugar. However, it is high in fat and fiber, so just one cookie will add 250 calories. That’s why this snack is a lot better for someone that isn’t trying to do a lean bulk, although you can definitely fit 250 calories into your plan while still staying lean. In either case, this can be a great high protein option compared to a regular cookie, which at this size would have almost 300 calories, over 20 grams of sugar, and only 3 grams of protein,
Another one of quests snacks that happen to be crunchy instead of sweet is their flavored tortilla chips. And these have a much friendlier macronutrient profile for staying lean. They also taste really good… Looking at one of the varieties, spicy & sweet, we see that 1 bag or 32 grams of quest chips provides 140 calories with a whopping 19 grams of protein, only 5 grams of carbs, and 4.5 grams of fat. When we compare that to Doritos spicy and sweet chili chips, we can see that for a smaller serving of the Doritos, we still end up with 140 calories, but out of those calories, only 2 grams are made up of protein, instead of 19 like the quest chips. Most of the calories come from the 18 grams of carbohydrates, and 7 grams of fat per serving.

Now instead of buying pre-packaged quest chips, you can make your own high-protein chips with parmesan cheese or you can buy them as well. For example, whisps parmesan cheese crisps contain 13 grams of protein, 10 grams of fat, and only 1 gram of carbohydrates. But like I said if you have parmesan cheese at home, and you want to make these on your own it’s very easy. You would simply take 1 tablespoon of parmesan cheese and place it flat on parchment paper or a non-stick oven pan and you do this over and over again to make multip parmesan cheese crisps. Then preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and cook them for about three to five minutes or until they become golden brown and crispy.
Another option if you like cheese doodles, and cheese puffs, is twin peaks keto-friendly protein puffs. Now this company really nailed the macros on this snack. 1 cup will provide 130 calories, with an insane 21 grams of protein, 4 grams of fat, and only 2 grams of carbs. With this kind of macronutrient profile, you can’t really go wrong in terms of providing your body the protein it needs to build muscle without many extra calories. The issue is that even though many people like these protein puffs, myself included, the issue is that reviews are mixed. Some people like them some people hate them, so it’s up…

    Often, when you think you’re hungry, you’re just bored. So nuts in the shells are great. When I gave up smoking and got the urge to pig out while watching movies, I’d eat monkey nuts (That’s uncooked peanuts, in the shells, with the skin still on. I guess they might call them something else in other places.) Shelling them gives your hands something to so, and slows you down, so you have plenty of time to decide you’ce eaten enough. Same with beef jerky if you take the time to really chew it properly and enjoy it. Not sure about the fat loss side of things. My goal was just to not go crazy

  21. Treble Rebel on July 29, 2022 at 11:26 pm

    Really???? Processed fake food.

  22. August on July 29, 2022 at 11:28 pm

    Aaaah the brain dead American logic of “eating fat will make you fat”. The exact opposite as long as you don’t eat processed garbage. Fat is much more satiating than carbs.

    El colágeno se transforma en peptidos en el proceso digestivo (como cualquier otra proteína). No hay evidencias científicas que demuestren que la ingesta de colágeno haga que el cuerpo genera dicha proteina compleja. Por lo demás buen vídeo. Muchas gracias.

    Well buddy! Scientifically, you can’t get collagen from external source. So all those drink out there claiming collagen water or shake isn’t scientific.
